I really enjoyed this Bitter beer. Was cool being able to take some home with me in big Growler bottles. Also the food at the brewery was very good, it is a nice little place to visit if anyone is in Younge and Eglinton area. Good food and good beers to taste.

Grey Cup 2012. Sample tray. Had the Best Bitter on tap and the Best Bitter dry hopped cask. I prefered the tap. Nice copper body. Bubbly head and nice lace. Long comforting woody hops.

From growler into pint glass. Pours a lovely coppery colour with light pillowy head that dissipates fairly quickly, and light to medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a light malty flavour with a hint of hoppiness, and medium bitter aftertaste. A solid British-style bitter,

Glass poured off a growler. Aroma was a good balance between light hops and caramel malt. Looks good with a nice copper/amber colour and some decent off-white head even though it was poured off a previously opened growler. Taste was very balanced between bitter hops and caramel malts. Solid body. Overall, a very good East Coast bitter.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2012 Great carbonation, in keeping with an English bitter. Nice leave of hops - dry bitter leave is excellent. A great craft beer. On tap at Granite

From Henry House in Halifax. What a beautiful, easy to enjoy bitter. Creamy in the mouth, bitter end with some very light hop pronouncement as well.

On tap @ The Henry House in Halifax, enjoyed as part of a tasting tray. Slightly darker than the Best Bitter, owing to the hop oils Iím guessing. I find there is more chocolate in here, both in the aroma and palate, along with a more pronounced bitterness and pithy dryness. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Toronto location, served in an English pint. Pours hazy amber with a frothy, off-white head. The head remains through to the end and leaves a moderate amount of lace. On the nose, there are big notes of citrus and pale malts, along with floral notes and a hint of honey. The flavour is crisp up front, balanced between moderate sweet malts and floral, citrusy hops. On the palate, it is light-medium in body with a smooth, watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a decent, refreshing citrusy bitter in the English style. A pleasing session ale. 2011-03-17

Copper colour with a pale creamy head. Delicious texture. Smooth balance of malt and hops. More grain and less bitterness than expected, but itís a well articulated flavour. Very good beer.
